TerraUSD downfall & Stablecoin adoption In Japan

As we know, the Terra crypto empire collapsed badly in May 2022, in which the top stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) & Luna coin collapsed. Following the downfall of TerraUSD stablecoin, the Japanese financial regulatory bodies established a new rule for the local stablecoin issuers, in June 2023. 

Under Japanese rules, local stablecoin issuers should make sure that stablecoin is always pegged by Yen or other currency and also the stablecoin users can redeem them at face value at any time.

Stablecoin-dedicated rules in Japan acted as a catalyst to push the fintech companies to show Inclination toward stablecoin-related business ideas.
